I’ve noticed a good few fine folks have joined the Stuff Your Cantaloupe Breakfast Club – The ultimate summer breakfast experience.
I highly support this club and all that it stands for, and highly suggest becoming a member if you have not already.
Overnight oats, overnight cottage cheese and oat mixtures, yogurt and fruit and cinnamon… you name it, it can be stuffed into your cantaloupe.
So what are you waiting for? Get stuffing today!
Though as much as I support melon mornings, I will admit than I am not a fully loyal member to the club and therefore do stray on the regular.
This morning I strayed into Smoothie Land with a Strawberry Chocolate Coffee Smoothie.
All measurements very approximate. Because all I ever do is throw random amounts into the blender.
- 1/2 cup coffee, splash skim milk, splash almond milk, handful fresh strawberries, handful frozen strawberries, tbsp cocoa powder, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder, packet Stevia, 1/2 tsp xanthan and guar, mucho ICE.
How I do:
3 (very) large over-ripe bananas
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup (80 ml) vanilla soymilk (or apple sauce)
2 tbsp (120 ml) agave nectar maple syrup
1/3 cup brown sugar
splash chocolate almond milk (maybe 2-3 tbsp?)
2 cups (240 g) white whole wheat flour (or regular whole wheat flour)
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (240 ml) blueberries
~1/2 cup chopped strawberries
Baked at 350 for 50 minutes in a greased loaf pan.
No eggs, butter, oil…yet LOOK at the moistness. I didn’t fully mash my banana either so there were plenty of lovely mushy banana chunks. Mmm.
I probably could have cooked it a wee bit longer but I dig the goo so if you make it and aren’t down with the doughy, leave it in longer.
Breakfast is SERVED. Perhaps alongside some now reduced sodium cottage cheese?
Nicely done Nordica. It does taste slightly different but I still dig so thanks for helping me to be kind to my blood pressure and bloat?
Or alongside cottage cheese and PB&J and orange slices. I go all out.
What Breakfast Club(s) are you the most loyal to?
My indecisive and variety-loving nature leaves me switching up my club memberships on a near daily basis.
…especially after searching “Breakfast” on weheartit. Just whoa.
Whatever your Breakfast Club of choice may be, the take home message is plain and simple:
